4 out of 5 eggsWorked

Pros: Installed easily, worked with old hardware.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It was an effective fix for a legacy system that was given to a child. The net cost was less than $100, which I figure is a good price for getting a year or two of computing use from a system.

2 out of 5 eggsI take it back

Pros: Well, it works in XP, I can say that....(absolutely hate having to pay MS for an OS).

Cons: What I formerly reviewed about this board and Ubuntu, I take back. Ubuntu and these SIS chipsets just don't work -- maybe it's more Ubuntu's fault, but SIS is everywhere. Video is fritzy--blurred when playing DVD's. No audio at all in Ubuntu. And the ethernet circuit repeatedly locks up in Ubuntu (NOT in XP). An add-on PCI lan adapter with Intel support has no problem, proving this is an SIS/Ubuntu issue. I spent a few weekends troubleshooting that one. The audio header for the front panel connection DISABLES any audio output, so that's a no-go. Remember that audio/front panel header comes with jumpers on pins 5-6, 9-10... restore those jumpers to get your sound back (not Ubuntu).

Other Thoughts: If and when I get the time to continue with Ubuntu, it will not be with this board. I will get only a known, Linux supportable board with compatible chipsets. I would not again waste so much time with an ECS-PCChips product. I do like the look and concept of Ubuntu, but it is still an emerging OS, not user-friendly, and the so-called support structure is freako-geeky. You have to have the time to deal with the fritzy nature of Ubuntu. I don't. I especially don't appreciate manufacturers like ECS/PCChips with an un-supportive "take-it or leave it" mentality. I won't be buying their product again.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: - Good value.
- Performance good enough to run my Ubuntu fileserver with software RAID, Amarok and Azureus running 24/7.

Cons: - Some stability issues on linux. Will freeze every few days. Not a huge problem for me but something to keep in mind.

Other Thoughts: This is my config:
- 1gb of RAM
- PCI SATA controller
- 5 SATA HDD (for RAID)
- 1 SATA HDD for the OS

4 out of 5 eggsNewegg Scores a Goal+

Pros: Decent combo. Good value. Easy build. Newegg's reputation is always important.

Cons: First board's video died. Mfg was reluctant to give me an exchange until Newegg intervened. New board seems to be fine so far.

4 out of 5 eggsGoal 3+ & Ubuntu

Pros: So far this board runs well, but I wanted to add important info to previous review since Ubuntu was acting nuts for me, while XP ran normally (I just don't want to pay Bill Gates any more money, so I beat my head trying to get Ubuntu to work).

Cons: After extended Ubuntu downloads/updates requiring a few hours Lan connection, Firefox appeared corrupted where, in my case, I could browse from the search box but all links appeared broken, and no browsing could occur clicking on any links. Being new to Linux, I find most forums unhelpful -- you have to learn the terms of Linux before really getting help. But I found one esoteric post about a guy with an Asus mainboard and having the same issue with Ubuntu -- which is basically the Lan circuit locking up Ubuntu's lan driver after extended downloads . Now, I don't get it cause XP still worked fine. The solution is nuts: power down, disconnect AC, and remove the Goal 3+ system battery for 5-10 minutes. Reboot, let Ubuntu reset drivers, and my Lan problem is gone -- Firefox is now browsing normally. Never seen anything like it.

Other Thoughts: Still having problems getting Ubuntu to recognize my SATA DVD drive (I'm using a PATA hard drive), and I may have to switch to a PATA DVD. Like another guy said, the SIS.com website does have Linux drivers for most chipsets, but there appears to be no simple way to update drivers in Ubuntu, which for Windows users is unacceptable. Overall, this board is quite quick and browsing is nearly instantaneous. So far, the board is good...Ubuntu has my hair turning gray.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great board for internet and work processing, if you max out the memory and add a decent video card you can play some high end games, love the combo with CPU and great price for daily user.

Cons: not enough PCI slots for expansion

3 out of 5 eggsGreat combo for the price

Pros: If your looking to revive some old ddr memory this would be the way to go.

Cons: None you get what you pay for. In this case an old slow computer. Only reason I bought this was my sister wanted to refurb her old computer and save as many of the old parts as she could.YES YES she is very cheap.

Other Thoughts: Buy this board and cpu combo on these conditions.
1. your poor
2. you cheap as $#&&
3. if you got some old ddr memory laying around that you wanna bring back to life
4. You don't want your computer to be able to do anything but read email. (Well thats a little harsh this board will play games like wow and runescape etc... with the onboard video.)
and does have a pci-e slot so you can put a decent video card in it.

5 out of 5 eggsVERY NICE

Pros: This (older technology) setup works better, faster and smoother with Windows 7 Beta than the Dell "Vista-powered" top of the line machine I bought ten months ago! It was a spur of the moment decision and I was pleasantly surprised after I had it up and running. Windows 7 Beta installed all drivers automatically and perfectly. Runs like a champ.

Cons: None
